5th Veterans Memorial Inv in Window Rock AZ Dec 14-15, 2018
« on: April 03, 2018, 04:13:42 PM »
The 4th VMI was a great success!!  27 teams competed in our arena (I gotta call it what it is) and we saw some great matches.  The Blue Devils from Sunnyside shook things up and took the tournament, followed by Camp Verde, Page, Ironwood, Los Alamos NM, Round Valley, Mingus and Chinle (for the top eight). 

We're not going to stop there.  The WRock is inviting 35 teams for the 5th VMI.  That's going to equal ten duals for EVERY team.  TEN!!  Do you hear me?!  Ten matches and our fees will stay the same or my name isn't Coach Hillis.  Plenty of mat time.  So far there are teams from Las Vegas NV to Moriarty NM that competed.  All three of our OutStanding Wrestlers were 2018 state champs with a combined record of 175-0 for this season alone!  (Whitewater-Page, Bravo-Young -SS and Henderson-Blue Ridge).   

So if you want a piece of this action and immerse your team in some great mat mayhem, contact me, Coach Marc Hillis @ Mhillis@wrschool.net for a flyer.  The Marines will test your wrestlers' pull-up strength, Bob P. from the valley makes some great shirts and you can get away from the norm. 

Our operators are standing by.....

(Ok, they're not really standing by.  It's just me.  I know I sound like a used car salesman or that Robocop "I'd-buy-that-for-a-dollar" guy... I just really would like your team to be part of this).  Your teams make our tournament what it is.   8) :o ;)

Coaches,

Just letting you know about the MS/Jr H tournament since I had a team ask.  We'll be using 8 mats for the HS VMI alone, so the middle school/Jr. tournament will be on Dec 13. 2018 (the day before).  We want the 36 team duals (new format for VMI) to go as smoothly as possible.  It'll be awesome and we will be the first tournament using Trackwrestling to have a dual tournament this big.  Like I said, we're pushing the boundaries with our tournament.  Our OW Fight Shorts came in and they look great.  Bob Perz always comes us with great shirt designs and goes out of his way to make unique. 

And Perry HS (Gilbert AZ) is our newest team to confirm. 

If you have questions, let me know.  Our coach, Duane Hanley at Tsehootstooi Middle School is the contact for the TMS Invitational.  You can reach him at dhanley@wrschool.net
